Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tessa Grays life changes forever when she loses her four-year-old daughter Abby in a hit-and-run accident outside her preschool. As she grapples with a terrible grief, made worse by the polices insistence that the case is unsolvable, she finds her only solace in Celia Reed, the grief counselor her husbands pushed her to see, and in the journal shes begun keeping, where she compulsively counts the “days without Abby” and maps out her plan for catching the driver who tore her family apart.

Celia struggles to keep Tessa from getting caught up in a bleak crusade for answers, but she finds that their sessions open the door to emotions shes spent years ignoring, forcing her to face the rising tensions in her own life-- her troubled teenage son, her alcoholic ex-husband, and her fragile new marriage. Celia soon begins to realize that she must come to terms with the tragic mistakes of her own past and the choices that have led her family to the brink of destruction.

Life Without Summer is a haunting portrait of two women whose lives converge unexpectedly when the answers one needs turn out to be the other's only chance for peace.

"Life Without Summer" tells the story of Tessa, a mother who has just lost her four-year-old daughter in a hit-and-run accident and the grief counselor, Celia, who tries to help her to put her life back together.
